Firestone Walker’s Pivo Pils

beer_152845With the Super Bowl just days away, John Verve of the LA Times rounded up a selection of craft brews for watching the match – among them this “zesty” Pilsner from Firestone Walker.

He said: “Often, pilsners are disregarded by craft beer fans who mistakenly believe that the golden lagers are synonymous with the lower-flavor Millers and Buds. But a well-crafted pilsner is not only complex and delicious, it’s almost the perfect beer to pair with football. This is especially true if you’re entertaining guests who may not have fully bought-in to the whole craft beer thing: Pilsner is familiar and unchallenging, but the best examples are flavorful enough to stand up to chips, dips, and all manner of football snacks. The style is also comparatively low in alcohol (usually around 5%), so you can sip on them for all four quarters without getting too bored (or too blasted). Firestone Walker’s Pivo Pils is a superlative craft example that features a zesty citrus punch from generous dry hopping.”

Pilsner, 5.3%
